For a friend and her son
« on: February 24, 2015, 08:56:40 PM »
A friend of mine is probably about to put herself in rehab (for cocaine and heroin), and she has a young son (age three).  My family may end up taking care of the little boy for a while if she has to go to inpatient rehab.

If y'all could pray for/send good thoughts/whatever to her and her son, I'd appreciate it.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Oh dear - tough times ahead but I hope your friend stays the course and recovers.  It's good that your family can help with her son. 

My thoughts will be there for your friend and her son.

A tough decision, but a brave one, as well. I will pray her rehab is successful, and that all will be well for both her, her son, and your family.

Realizing that she has a problem and needs help is an important first step. I'll be praying for her, her son, and all involved, and that she continues in the course of taking the next right step.
